I chose the honey mask because it claims to target "problem skin" and that summed up how I felt at the time, my skin was a bit hormonal (thankfully it's calmed down now) and a few spots were appearing.. yuck. Honey is naturally antibacterial so it seemed the perfect choice for me, plus the peel-off aspect meant some of the areas of dry skin (particularly my nose!) would get some TLC too.
It also looks very much like honey; it's golden and gooey. But it was easy to apply (although getting an even layer can be tricky) and it instantly feels soothing on your skin, which was exactly what I needed. 20 minutes later, I spent this time folding laundry #GlamLife, and it was time to get peeling! My face was now stiff, I could see wrinkling in the mirror (below photo) and it looked ready.
I did give my face a quick wash with water just to make sure I hadn't missed anything but my skin felt instantly 50 times better. It looked a lot less tired, it was brighter and fresher, the spots I'd had appearing had shrunk down a lot and looked less red, and my skin glowed. For the first time using this mask I was seriously thrilled.
It's now a couple of days since I used the mask and my skin still looks a lot better than before I put it on, my skin is clearer with a few of those troublesome blackheads gone at last, I haven't had anymore spots appear yet (although that could be down to hormones too) and my skin just looks healthier.
Considering the Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey peel-off face mask costs only £1 (I bought mine from Boots here) and takes just 20 minutes to use it worked wonders for me and I will definitely be stocking up on these to use more regularly.
I have a couple of other masks I picked up from Boots to try out but I think this will become a firm favourite, it gets a full 5 stars from me!
I'd love to know your thoughts on face masks: love them or hate them? Favourite mask? Peel-off, mud, sheet? Please let me know in the comments below, they make my day!
Stay safe! x
